  2. Dear Premodern:

    There is a ponderosa pine three quarters of mile up the road from my house that has a burl nearly as big as the burl in the photo I posted, and I know of a ponderosa pine in a side canyon that has a burl that is close to four feet across. There is something about the land and climate in this part of Colorado that allows the ponderosas to grow burls.
